Dancing Til Dusk 2024 Summer Schedule

Grab your friends, kids, neighbors or significant other and get ready for our annual Dancing ‘til Dusk events. Seattle Parks and Recreation and partners will be featuring 17 glorious nights of FREE dancing outdoors in Downtown Parks starting in July (see full schedule below).

The first hour is a beginning dance lesson; no experience needed! We rotate partners, but if you prefer not to, bring a partner to the lesson.

2024 marks our 17th year of Dancing til Dusk! More information on lessons and bands available here.
